Great bit of sales blurb. I think I'll start with this Exage Country group, but I do have a complete '87-'88 XT group & an '88-'89 Deore/Deore II group that I was keeping for my Cape builds... all depends how it rides.
I’m not sure if it’s the cold weather or maybe I’ve been spoilt, but the more I clean the crud off of the Country kit the more I realise how basic it is, so I went up into the workshop loft to check what’s lurking back there & I had a go through the “good” boxes as well, so here’s the list;
I’ve got a pair of 1989 XT M730/732 hubs on Araya 20 rims
1988 XT FD-M730 Alpine front mech
1990 XT RD-M735 rear mech
1987 XT FC-M730 Biopace silver crankset, ‘
1990 XT BR-M732 Canti silver brakes
1989 XT STM091 2 finger rapid fire 7spd shifters
1989 XT DF-M730 Shark fin
1990 CS-HG90 cassette
1988 Deore PD-MT60 pedals
XT BB-UN72 bottom bracket
1989 XT M732 hubs on Araya RM20 rims
A pair of Farmer John’s Cousins and some re-issue ODI attack grips should finish it off nicely.
Nothing’s NOS or even VGC but it’s all a damn sight better than the Exage!
